3 A reply will be sent within seven (7)days of receiving your request for review. If you are found to live in the Service Area you must choose a treating doctor from the network. If you receive care outside the network and you are found to live in the Service Area you may be responsible for those charges. If you do not agree with the decision, you may file a complaint with the Texas Department of Insurance by contacting them at or by writing to: HMO Division, Texas Department of Insurance Mail Code 103-6A P. O. Box Austin, TX Include the following: your name current address telephone number a copy of the Network s letter, and anything else you sent to the Network with your request. SELECTION OF A TREATING DOCTOR If you are injured on the job and need medical care you must choose a doctor to manage all of your medical needs. You have two ways to choose a treating doctor. 1. Choose your current HMO doctor (doctor listed as your treating doctor under your health insurance plan) a. as long as that doctor was chosen as your HMO doctor prior to your work injury AND b. your HMO doctor agrees to the terms of the Network and will comply with the Network rules. You should contact your Network Representative to discuss this request 2. You may choose a doctor in your service area from the network labeled as Treating Doctors. The Network provider list will be available to your employer, your doctor and you. You may ask your employer or Network Representative for a copy of a full or partial list of doctors or get a copy by OR 3

4 a. an internet link OR b. by calling If you are using the internet, simply enter in the address box of your computer s search engine. Click on the Provider Search tab and enter the address from which you like the search to be conducted. If you are currently treating for a work injury by a doctor not in the network you must select a doctor in the network. This has to be done within fourteen (14) days after you receive this notice. If you do not select a Network doctor within that time, the Network will assign one to you. Except for emergency services, you must obtain all health care and specialist referrals through your treating provider. The Network must arrange for timely medical treatment, including referrals to specialists. This means not more than twenty one (21) days after receiving your request. This does not include Emergency treatment. Change of Treating Doctor If you want to change your treating doctor you must contact your Network Representative. They will help you get a list of doctors in your Service Area. If you are not happy with your second choice you must contact your Network Representative for approval to change your doctor. If your request is denied you may appeal the decision through the Network complaint process. See the heading How to File A Complaint in this document. Call your Network Representative if your treating doctor dies or leaves the network. If you move outside the service area or distance requirements you may choose a new doctor. Referrals To Specialists Treating doctors may refer you to specialists within the network. If your treatment needs cannot be met within the network your Network Representative must approve out of network referrals. They must respond within seven (7) days from receipt of your request. Request To Use A Specialist as a Treating Provider If you want a Specialist to be your treating doctor, please contact your Network Representative for additional information. 4

Any follow up treatment must be done by a Network doctor. CONTINUITY OF CARE (Continuing Care) POLICY If your doctor voluntarily leaves the Network and requests to continue your care the Network will reimburse the provider for no more than ninety (90) days, at the contracted rate, for: treatment for an acute condition if a change would cause you harm treatment for a life-threatening condition if a change would cause you harm This policy shall not require the Network to provide for continued treatment by a provider whose contract with the Network has been terminated or not renewed due to: medical disciplinary action failure to maintain or keep a license, OR any other reason for which continuation of care with that provider could risk your health or safety.
